Programs

CIRCLE TIME: Tuesdays 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Structured active play is one of the most important ways that young children learn, and Circle Time offers countless opportunities for engaging even the youngest of learners!

MUSIC & MOVEMENT: Wednesdays 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Did you know that Music & Movement has great brain building benefits for children of all ages? Our Music & Movement class engages both hemispheres of the brain, helping children develop systematically along five domains: speech/language; fine and gross motor skills; cognition; social skills; and body awareness. Come sing, dance and play with us!

ART TIME: Thursdays 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

It is no secret that kids love art! Did you know that participating in art can have an enormous impact on your child’s growth and development? When children are exposed to any artistic activity the brain is stimulated from sounds, movements, colors and sizes; neural connections increase and the brain is exercised and strengthened! 

STORY TIME: Fridays 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Story Time is one of the richest learning experiences for young learners. Did you know reading books out loud to your child helps develop their reading skills long before they are able to read? Join us for a read-aloud, then stick around to enjoy a creative arts activity after each story to help reinforce learning and boost memory skills through art, dramatic play, theater or puppetry!

All Daily Programs are FREE with your membership or general admission. Class sizes are limited to ensure maximum learning and require sign up at the front desk on the day of your visit.

SENSATIONAL PLAYGROUPS: Wednesdays at 11 a.m.

This month, we are exploring the sense of taste. Learn more.

Wonderscope, in partnership with the University of Kansas Medical Center occupational therapy (OT) program, is now offering sensory playgroups.

Research shows that inclusive sensory-based activities provide children and families the opportunity to better understand their individual sensory preferences and how they influence their interactions with others and the world around them.

Wonderscope’s Sensational Playgroups will be planned and led and by OT students as part of the community service-learning opportunity in their curriculum. Registration is not required and the playgroup is in included with museum admission.

Let’s get ready for Kindergarten!

Wonderscope’s Road to Readiness program is designed to help children grow skills in important developmental areas. Best of all, it’s FREE with regular museum admission or membership!
